Pure Research

My heart is a radio telescope,
a silver bowl on a silent plain

cocked so to hear stars, open
as conjecture and pulsing welcome.

I’m the dark of the moon, snug
as a government grant, wrapped

in your beaming crescent. A sure
hypothesis is our stellar beauty, bodies

waxing gratitude, backed with no-
strings benefaction. The logic

of orbits makes me dizzy. You
chart the spins and give me credit.
